New York City is again spraying dangerous pesticides to kill mosquitoes said to be carrying West Nile Virus. The City is spraying “Duet”, which is a stronger pyrethroid
poison than the chemicals it’s been spraying in recent years. "Duet" adds the synthetic chemical Prallethrin to the
toxic stew of Sumithrin, piperonyl butoxide, propane, napthalene, and trimethyl
benzene. According to the No Spray Coalition
which had won its lawsuit against the City’s spraying ten years ago, pyrethroids are
endocrine disruptors and are extremely dangerous to all people as well as
animals and pets, and especially to children.
